We celebrate the BEST of MODERN MOTHERHOOD at Expo Mom 2012!
What is modern motherhood? Or more interestingly, what is a modern mom?
What defines her? What does she value? What sets her apart from mothers that came before her?
Modern moms are active, empowered parents, We’ve come up with a list of modern mom personas as we try to encapsulate in simplified terms what a modern mom is. Do you see yourself in any of these modern mom personas?
With today’s green revolution comes the growing number of earth-loving moms who have adopted a natural lifestyle. “back to basics”. Amidst technology, the new discoveries and trends in products that promote easy and convenient living and instant results, she chooses to go back-to-basics, choosing natural products, lessening the use of toxic chemicals and elements, she recycles and upcycles, and makes careful purchasing decisions to decrease her family’s carbon footprint,
The modern mom is health conscious, she wants to be in the best shape possible, not only so she can care for her family better but also for herself, so that she is physically able to live better, reach her goals and dreams, and bec she values herself.
She’s one who has her cake and will eat it too. She balances raising her kids with building and running a business. She finds fulfillment in being able to contribute to the family income, while feeding her passions and using her talents and skills in her business.
The expectant mom of today, we’d like to call Belly blessed. She is in touch with her body, she is an informed mom-to-be, often with an equally active and involved partner. She has knowledge and products at her fingertips and she uses this for her own and her coming baby’s benefit.
We must admit, she’s the most “prevalent” type of our modern mom personas. She loves technology and gadgets, and uses these to enhance her life. She takes advantage of technology to allow her to maximize her time, she uses it to be in touch, she uses it to fulfill multiple roles with the least effort and least time. And she uses it to be in the know.
The hands-on mom wants to be intimately involved in every facet of her child’s life. She is an active, ever-present parent.
More and more moms now choose to breastfeed because they know breastmilk is truly the best and that making breastmilk is our very own “superpower”. Armed with information and support, she is a committed nursing mom, inspite of all the challenges that go with breastfeeding.
The sling wearing mom-of-today is a sight to behold. She carries her baby wherever she goes, with confidence and with ease. She chooses to babywear not only for the convenience but also because she believes in the benefits of attachment parenting.
So what type of modern mom are you? Actually there’s probably a bit of each modern mom persona in each of us, and no matter what it’s just great (and fun!) to know what type we are and realize that in the end, we are all just trying to be the best moms we can possibly be for our kids!
